"La semplicità è la suprema sofisticazione" -- Leonardo da Vinci

Earplug is a minimalist relaxation app. When you can't sleep, reach for Earplug. It only does one thing... perfectly.

Sleep, meditate and concentrate soundly with a buttery–smooth "masking" track that can help to hide:
• Snoring
• Sirens
• Wild animals
• Distant screams
• Neighbors
• Poltergeists
• Sadness
• Breathing

Earplug Sound is our proudest creation: it's a rarefied blend of pink and white noise looped and spun like silk; Earplug’s Sound pairs up perfectly with almost any source of environmental noise, helping to lessen its impact and free your mind.

When you need Earplug most, you're either half-asleep or you want to be. You don't want to fiddle. You want the app that was created by experts in audio and user interface to guide your experience.

We made Earplug because we're like you. We love sleep sound apps but never found what we were searching for, so we built our own: Earplug. It's distraction-free in its sound, design and stability, and it's quality from beginning to end.

• Unlock your phone
• Open the Earplug app

Earplug can also be controlled from the Control Center, Apple Watch, and the iPhone lock screen.

The App also works great with headphones (especially Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones and Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II) and external speakers. The App will resume after your alarm or timer goes off, and will respond to bluetooth media controls.

Sleep isn't something you do. Wait for it!

Thanks for checking out Earplug and sweet dreams!

What’s New

Version 3.00

Version 3 polishes the sound of Earplug for the latest generation of noise-canceling headphones (e.g., Sony WH-1000XM4 and WF-1000XM4, Bose QuietComfort 45, Apple AirPods Pro).

In addition, we've added some subtle UX features including an updated twinkling effect and better handling of the Pause button's visibility.

Sleep well!

Wow! Just arrived tonight in a noisy hotel, thought to myself "there has to be an app for this problem," found "earplug" and all I can say is wow! It works like a charm...with my headphones on all the background noise is covered up and I can get some much needed rest. Thanks for a great app!

Update, a few years later: I have been religiously using earplug every time I need to block out outside noise… And I have to say, not only am I better-looking than I ever was before, but I also feel more powerful, confident and successful! And I owe it all to this one app… Because if it didn't help me block out the noise that I need to block out in order to sleep the way I need to sleep in order to be as successful as I need to be, I wouldn't be anywhere.

All hail EARPLUG! May it be praised with great praise.

Could not live without this app!

From the moment I started using Earplug, I started sleeping so much better. I really depend on it now for a good night’s sleep.

I already was running my air conditioner fan at night to create white noise. In addition, I have a white noise machine which I have had for number of years.

But lately, my air conditioner has been noisy. I just wasn’t getting a good night’s sleep. I decided to give this app a try.

The combination of white and pink noise is just perfect for cutting out all unwanted noise around me.

I live near an Air Force Base, and I no longer need earplugs. I put my iPhone about a foot or two away from my head and go to sleep. I like that the app is extremely simple to use, without a lot of fuss or controls. It just works perfectly.

To the developer: please continue to update this for all future iOS versions, because at this point I cannot imagine sleeping without it. Thank you!

Single-use app, perfect for sleep

This is my go-to for white noise. I have lots of (great apps) but this one has better sound and it does everything I need. Love the colors too.

(I find I can get more volume control using the slider on the Home Screen. The volume controls on the side of the phone are too coarse)

Anyway, lovely, thanks again
